I know, I know. I've not been a very good blogger this summer. I've not done much knitting at all, so there's really nothing to show. I've mostly just laid low and had a very quiet exsistance for the past several weeks, which I suppose is something I needed, but makes for a very boring blog.
I did take a little trip to California this past weekend to visit my favorite blonde, Sprite, and to meet a new friend, Duane. Although the trip involved no fiber, it did entail a little jaunt to Yosemite National Park, shopping in Fresno, and lots of laughter.
The flights to and fro were actually quite good, the only little delay being the take off from San Jose Monday night (20 minutes, which did not screw up the rest of the schedule at all)(and yes, I did take the red-eye flight home, which really was ok, and I did sleep a lot on the plane). The only thing I found very odd was that when I landed in Devner at 10:30 Monday night, there was absolutely no place to get anything to eat. Nothing. Nada. Does that seem strange, or is it just me? I'd think that if you have flights coming and going throughout the night at a very large airport, there would be something somewhere to get at least a cup of coffee and a muffin. Nope. I did find vending machines quite by accident, but a Coke and a Snickers bar at 11:00 just didn't do it. And if there was a little shop open throughout the night, don't you think they'd be raking in some money from the red-eye passangers? Just sayin'. Anyway....
A couple of shots from Yosemite:
On the way to the airport on Monday we stopped at one of Sprite's favorite places, Casa de Frutos, a HUGE farmers market:
My favorite thing at Casa de Frutos was this 1930's (I think) pick up truck that they used for display:
Another trip to sunny California is now running through my head. I'll be back.
School starts in a couple of weeks, and I've decided to stay where I am at the moment while I figure out what it is exactly that I want for my next job. Lots to think about for the future. And lots of yarn in my stash so I guess I better get my sorry ass in gear and make SOMETHING!!! LOL.
I hope you all are enjoying the last weeks of August. I know I'm looking forwward to fall and Rhinebeck...
